Dustin Prinz - Eleven

Few musicians take the time to master their instrument in the way that Oklahoma City singer-songwriter Dustin Prinz has; he’s a guitar virtuoso in every sense of the word, and Eleven gives him the chance to show just how far he can push that skill.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss

Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.

Colourmusic — May You Marry Rich

There’s always a sense of danger when debuting songs in a live setting and playing them well. Without having heard the studio versions, expectations are set according to the live incarnations. But capturing the breadth of free-flowing atmosphere and sheer volume on a disc, vinyl or digital file isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially for a band as vociferous as Colourmusic.

Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters

As titles go, Churches into Theaters is an apt descriptor for the debut album from Oklahoma City rockers Em and the MotherSuperiors. It’s a reverential record, one that shares the gospel of classic rock, blues and soul but embraces the need to refashion it for modern times, channeling The Dead Weather, Grace Potter and Cage the Elephant along the way.

That's it ... "Nice & Easy" ...

Having debuted with “Nice & Easy,” local crooner Wade Tower is working on two albums.

For those with “Martinis & Mistletoe” on their wish list, good news: That’s the name of a  special Christmas concert scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday at FireLake Grand Casino, 777 Grand Casino in Shawnee.

Oklahoma City crooner Wade Tower will take center stage to give audience members a night of season music they won’t soon forget. Clad in a tuxedo and accompanied by a seven-piece band and a glamorous female vocalist in a sequined gown, Tower aims sure to dazzle.

This is the first year for “Martinis & Mistletoe,” but not FireLake’s first Christmas-themed concert.

“We thought we would try another type of Christmas show this year, and Wade Tower has performed for us before,” said events coordinator Michelle O’Bright. “He came up with this Christmas show and presented it to us, and we went with it.”

Tower will sing classics by such legendary crooners such as Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Michael Bublé.

He’ll bring the feeling of a ritzy cocktail party as he belts out tunes such as Crosby’s “White Christmas” and Elvis Presley’s “Blue Christmas,” along with some of his own songs, in a 90-minute set.

Tickets are $10. For more information, call 964-7777 or visit —Carmen Forman
